Bodo Möller Chemie expands to North Africa and the Middle East and enters into Formulation Operations
Privately owned specialty chemicals and formulated products distributor Bodo Möller Chemie Group [“Bodo Möller Chemie” or “BMC”] (Offenbach am Main, Germany) has recently announced the expansion into North Africa as a geographic region and into the formulation of polymer materials as a business activity.
The Company has taken over business activities from Huntsman Advanced Materials (Basel, Switzerland) in Egypt, including a modern production plant in Sadat City, and two sales offices with laboratories in Cairo and Alexandria, giving the company direct access to a complete sales structure and to customer services.
The plant has a surface area of 4’200 m² and an annual production capacity of 4’500 MTPA of polymer materials, mostly for floorings. The manufacturing site has a staff of 32 employees in the production process, which complies with European and German standards (ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001), BMC said in a statement
As part of the takeover, Bodo Möller Chemie also obtained distribution rights for products from the Huntsman Advanced Materials portfolio for Middle Eastern and North African markets.
In December, BMC had announced that the group has opened a subsidiary in Shanghai to serve the Chinese market. The new office will be focusing on products from Huntsman Advanced Materials’ portfolio, mostly Adhesives and a number of systems solutions for the Composite and Electronic industry segments. In addition, Adhesives and Sealants from Dow Automotive’s range of systems for use in the Transportation Manufacturing indus-try will be marketed through this office, BMC said at the time.
